There are no chances of reduction in his numbers,Use glass continuously to stop increase in numbers.
Some time due to less development of eye ball in comparison of eye socket one gets numbers but this gives plus numbers and chance of normal eye is possible but in your case numbers will remain life long.
Give him Green veg,salads,fresh fruits and vitamin A and other vitamin supplements.
